Thanks Hoppy, I certainly agree that a range is going to be better then a specific number - after all it's not like plants die at 0-49 PAR, thrive at 50, and die 51+. I also consider my PAR goals to...

Looking for a saltwater tank forums as good as ours?

I've got a 29 gallon tank in the garage tempting me to fire up a saltwater tank. I've never done a saltwater, just thought I might sneak it by the wife if she gets to pick some new pretty fish :)

Ah, I thought you meant by turbo charged you thought it wouldn't be adequate for the amount of CO2 you needed for a large tank.

I run a Rex Grigg on a 180 with no problems - make the PVC piece a bit longer as he suggest for higher bps. It's one of the most efficient style reactors out there as far as I know.

Don't forget that the tank will show the same pressure reading of 800-1000 until it starts to run out of liquid co2 - then the meter will drop off fairly quickly (probably still a few days/week at...

I realize this is very old - but in case someone else finds this like I did with Google - it's incorrect. I have a 300w for 5/8 hose that is red.

Ahh your diffuser. Good call, I didn't notice that. I've read some of them require a minimum psi - I don't have to worry about that as I use a Rex grigg inline diffuser.
